Anyway, I came away asking myself the question..."Who ever said we needed to be the same?" Sometimes I think we try so hard to "fit the mold" (whatever the mold is!). I loved the message in Honk! that we all are needed to make the "farm" interesting. And really for it even to function, right? I know we talk about this topic, but I wish we all could feel it.
There is genius in each of us! Genius...not just talent or differences or characteristics....GENIUS! There is really only one way for ME to be JULIA....and for YOU to be YOU. For me this is the true meaning of individual worth.
I have two favorite books that remind me that it's okay to be ME...two books I could read over and over and over again and of which I never tire.

Thanks, Jess for this one!! It's about a guy who lives in a neighborhood where all of the houses are the same...until his is found with an orange splot. Suddenly, after the shock is over, everyone is trying to see just how creative their homes can be!

This one is just like it sounds...One goose just can't seem to do anything "right." And yet, he proves to be the happiest duck in the pond!
YOU are a GENIUS at being YOU!!
